ca. 1553 Anna von Palandt by ? (Schloß Horst in Gelsenkirchen, Regensburg Germany)

Anna wears a coat or over-dress with bulging French-style sleeves adorned with white cloth strips, perhaps to cover the rolled or French sleeves of her gold brocade dress. Her hair appears to be completely encased in a gauzy hair net covered by a headdress of the same material. She wears a necklace that matches two lappet-like ornaments hanging from her headdress.
